Gearing up to make Uttar Pradesh a hub of industrialisation, the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath-led Government of Uttar Pradesh is all set to host the Groundbreaking Ceremony on June 3. With some of the biggest names as participants, the state government is expecting investment proposals of more than 70,000 crore coming on the ground.

According to official reports, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to attend the proposed event at Lucknow. Chairmen, CEOs, directors and representatives of all national and multinational companies including Adani Group, Microsoft India, Reliance Industries, Hiranandani Group, Birla Group, and ITC Group will participate.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath held a meeting with top officials and gave instructions regarding the outline of the programme. He said that Uttar Pradesh has emerged as the best destination for industrial investment in the country in the last five years under the guidance of Prime Minister Modi.
